Want to purchase autographed book for aspiring 21 year old to fly A10

Dan, hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks again for your brotherhood kindness to Jeff Dishart, who passed at the VA Hospital, in 2015. It was a tough passing. Since last year, I serve active duty service members as a volunteer with Navy-Marine Corp

Relief at NAS-Jax. I work a lovely lady, her husband is a retired USAF Pilot (T37, C130, C-26); and they have a 21 year old son who is an aspiring A10 military pilot. Mom wants to purchase your book

"Viper Pilot" as a Christmas present for their son. Is it possible for you to autograph the book to Nick Banwart? Blessings upon you and your family. Laurene 847 770-5000
